This bicycle motor appears to be all alone in the world and I'm trying to figure out why. I got it from an "everything" collector and he didn't know much about it except that the manufacturer, Advanced Engine Products, was formerly Ohlsson & Rice. I did find a similar motor named Chicken Power by O&R, but nothing about the Pony Express. All I found on the Internet was the manufacturer's ad in a Popular Mechanics magazine from 1978, and a forum thread by someone looking for parts. There must be other Pony Express engines somewhere, tucked away in garages, but I've searched high and low and can't even find a product review.

    I would register in the forum where someone was looking for parts and ask him/her if they knew anything about it. Someone that is restoring something is likely to have some kind of information.

    Since you mentioned it, I just now took another look at that forum (from May 2010) and saw a phone number on one of the replies. Thanks, but the mystery isn't solved yet. :)

    Hiya,

    I have a Pony Express. It has a miniature centrifugal clutch and 6:1 gear box. You can see it in these video.
